My Students

My students are wonderful second and third graders, eager to learn and explore! They love coming to school every day and always put forth their best effort even though they face many obstacles.

The students in my classroom are considered medically fragile and have a wide range of disabilities and medical conditions.

Many have spent time in the hospital or have gone through extensive surgeries. Some have physical or cognitive impairments and have to work twice as hard as their peers. However, they always have smiles on their faces. Their passion and motivation is an inspiration to me on a daily basis. They may learn differently and have more needs than many students, but they constantly overcome obstacles and prove that they can be successful!

My Project

Our class library has really come to life this year! Now that we have a new book shelf, we need some new seating options for this space. My goal is for my classroom library to be a relaxing and safe place for all students to enjoy a book and fall in love with reading.

Due to physical challenges, some students cannot sit comfortably in typical chairs.

This "kids couch," will allow all of the students in my classroom to enjoy this area.

In addition, the students in my classroom have many medical issues. Being in a clean environment is especially important. This couch is made of a material that can be wiped off and cleaned easily. Any support for this project is greatly appreciated!
